Margarets’ painting style demonstrates a deep connection to her country, the bushes and wild medicine flowers are brightly painted onto the earth and the artist often employs a bold palette. Artists from Ampilatwatja often omit the sky from their compositions, allowing the viewer’s eye to scan the landscape without a focal point, presenting two viewpoints of the country, combining an aerial and frontal view in the one composition.
Margaret’s mother is artist Rosie Ngwarraye Ross. Rosie has a similar style enjoying bright colours and a focus on the native flora of their country. Both mother and daughter enjoy painting together and expressing their love of country through their art.
